NAME TO KNOW … Ivan Navarro.

LIVES AND WORKS IN … Brookly, New York.

KILLER AESTHETICS … Suggestive and creative use of fluorescent and incandescent light to create sculptures with a sociopolitical message.

COOL FACTOR … This Chilean artist sometimes constructs furniture items such as doors and chains from neon lights–glowing, minimalist, interactive, and unnerving.

A NEW REALM … One of his most popular works, You Sit, You Die, is a structurally complex lounge chair built from white fluorescent lights–Navarro’s version of the electric chair.
